The Epic of Mount Everest  

This book contains a condensed description of first three expeditions to climb Everest: the assaults and ascents of 1921, 1922 and 1924.
The Epic of Mount Everest, first published in 1926, is the exciting story of the first attempts to reach the summit of Mount Everest, including that of George Mallory and Andrew Irvine, who disappeared and died in the 1924 expedition. Considered “must reading” for mountaineers, The Epic of Mount Everest provides a fascinating insight into the men, methods, and struggles of early mountain-climbers. Included are 15 pages of illustrations and 2 maps.
The author, Sir Francis Younghusband, was the first Chairman of the Mount Everest committee of the Royal Geographical Society.

"Younghusband was one of the major figures in the organization of early Everest expeditions." -- Jill Neate, Mountaineering Literature.
